city of god, sketchy ebay items.

well, i just got city of god on dvd today from malaysia, an ebay item. the back cover, of course it came with no case, says for special features it has "cast interviews". cool, huh? so i play the special feature and surprise, surprise.. no interviews. what was the special feature you ask? its some episode of ripleys believe it or not!

the item description said official, no bootleg, etc., but i suspect the seller is full of it.

anybody else have problems like this? i mean, how did that ripleys believe or not end up on the dvd?

ive reported it to paypal, but still, i want this movie now, id rather not wait for the domestic release.

there are a few versions of this on DVD in other regions, details of the specs can be found here...

sorry, i dont see any versions with Ripley's believe it or not hehe. it sounds like the source material ended and the disc started recording what was coming thru on cable, believe it...or not.

Early this year, I got a dvd of "So Close" on e-bay, thinking it would never be released as a R1. The back cover looked like someone pasted various credits from different covers, i.e it mentioned Touchstone Pictures, but then had Nicolas Cage's name, Ving Rhames, etc from a Paramount movie, like it was pasted on the back of the cover.
